Reminders – “Tock the Gnome” is available to read for free both here and on Patreon (where there is much bonus art, story and world-building to boot), so please do check it it out if you haven’t yet! ~ Also, call for artists is still open for “Prints for Pam-a-Lamb.” ~ And prints of my own work, comic books, coloring books and needlefelted OOAK dolls are available anytime on Etsy.
Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂
(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)
Thanks for your patience with updates, too – if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging me on Patreon yet, but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!
Playing catchup with advertising this weekly patrons-only bonus ^^;
Anyway, last week’s double feature World Building Wednesday is up, as is the full inkwork for page 90!
So much hurt, on both sides
(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out most of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are some new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide when there’s enough of them. But if you’re curious, most of this page and all the pages before it is/are decipherable through the first part!)

In the meantime, I hope you’ve been enjoying Gnomevember and look forward to the holiday bonus drawing! (Patrons will be getting a little something extra special this year, btw ❤ )
NOTE: There are some errors in the text of panel 5, from scanning, that I didn’t catch before. I will have those fixed up later today.
UPDATE: Panel 5 is fixed!
I did the thing!!!
Day 31, “Magic”
Chosen specifically for the magicy magical day of Halloween!
These Orcs, by the way, do not have magic in Tock’s time – so I imagine the feeling of it would be quite a jarring.
Bonus – “The Orcs Unite Us”
Collaboration with the amazing basileonardo, who was kind enough to ask me to draw with him (go check out his page, his Orcs are amazing!) 💕
And that makes a COMPLETE challenge!! Congrats to everyone who participated.
Thank you to everyone who stuck with me this month, and welcome to any new followers from it!
I hope you all stay with me and look forward to what comes next 🤗
(…….Gnomevember, that is!)
Catching up again 😀 We’re almost there!
Day 25, “Love”
This idea came to me, a manifestation of how we must channel Love through ourselves in order to give it to others….. I’m happier with it the more I look at it, but it still doesn’t exactly match what was in my mind. Hope the meaning still comes across okay.
Day 26+27, “History” and “Fire”
I ended up combining these two with the idea that for these Orcs, the central campfire of their tribe’s camp represents their connection to their sun deity and all their ancestors that walked the path of life before them.
Day 28, “Breath”
Featuring an Orc noblewoman and a Gnome noblewoman, to account for the hat (“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes only wear pointed hats for status reasons and fancy occasions, more on that at Patreon here).
And as for the image itself – we all breathe the same air, don’t we?
More catchup time ^^; Thank you for your patience, dear readers, its been a very trying week.
Firstly, time for another World Building Wednesday post, then catch-up in order.
World Building Wednesday 17 & Orctober twenty four, “Wise”
